More than a Spirit Mark
The Notre Dame monogram is the University’s most recognizable logo. However, it is not the primary mark for the University academy. Therefore, it should only be used by non-academic units such as campus services, alumni clubs, and student groups.
It is familiar and recognizable to our key audiences and represents the spirit of the University. Therefore, it may be used prominently in certain communications.
The monogram may appear in Notre Dame blue, Notre Dame gold or black, or reversed in white. Specific color values are available on the University Colors page.
